Magnitude map

In the Magnitude Map, colour distinguishes how much of something is present in an area. For example, in this Kaikoura Earthquake Map, bright yellows represent higher earthquake magnitudes while dark blues represent lower magnitudes. This colour ramp is effective on a dark grey basemap. The dark blues fade into the background while the bright yellows shine, emphasising the higher magnitudes.
